Health Observances


National Influenza Vaccination Week

Flu vaccination disparities among African American, Hispanic, and American Indian/Alaska Native adult populations contribute to a higher risk for developing serious health complications. Join CMS in highlighting the importance of flu prevention and helping at-risk communities access the care they need by sharing prevention resources.

The CMS Office of Minority Health welcomes your participation in promoting observances throughout the year to raise awareness about health issues affecting people across our nation. Share our resources on prevention, health equity, and research about health disparities.
